Engineering meeting, March 8th

Collwright Engineering Services logo

Today we had a preliminary meeting with Oliver and Luke from Collwright Engineering Services. They are doing some design development and FEA analysis on components. We discussed the alterations to the plenum design to make it possible with a 3 axis mill. The drive system was discussed, and a gearbox linkage agreed for the gearchange. Several other systems were analysed for possible improvements.
Overall it was a very satisfying meeting, with plenty of positive outcomes and further aspects to develop. Thanks to Oliver from Collwright for hosting the meeting, and his superb work on the Angelic Bulldog Project.

Autosports Show.

One person I forgot to mention who helped us at the show is Gethin Thomas, from our major partner, SRS Rail UK. Gethin came on Saturday, and made an astute observation early on, regarding the pattern of people visiting the stand. We moved the engine on his recommendation and it made people move into the stand in a much more balanced way and created a lot more interest, rather than people just looking as they passed by. Thanks Gethin!

The Angelic Bulldog team had an excellent Autosports Show at the NEC this weekend. I would like to thank everybody who came to talk to us and look at the project over the two days. We had an amazing response, particularly to the engine, which looked magnificent on it’s stand.

We are working with Alan and Kirsty from Linkecu and NGK to sort out the ECUs for the engine, and held several meetings on Saturday and Sunday to discuss and clarify specifications and compatibility.
I am grateful to Peter, John, Gethin, Prem, Martin, Will and Mario for all they did to make it the best we could. I am proud of their efforts, and I hope everyone recovers from their sore throats asap!
